Vincente Boffo joined Whitefriars in 1969 as a master glassblower, in the factory he was known as MR Boffo. He worked with his son Ettore and left Whitefriars sometime in 1970. The factory lehr sheets show his last production during Wk 26 of 1970. ( I will try and discover what the date of wk 26 is)
He left with his Son to join Michael Harris who started Mdina , Valletta, Malta . He stayed on at Mdina when Michael Harris left in 1972 and was mainly involved with training apprentices
Ettore died at an early age from leukemia, however I do not know the date of his death or that of his father.

It is so good that his great talent is now being discovered and appreciated.
